[Tig] correction platform comparisons

It's the doldrums between IBC and NAB, and I have a question regarding the development and use of two particular platforms: Autodesk Lustre and FilmLight Baselight.   How do they compare in ease of use and feature sets?

I know it's a loaded question.

I have a little experience on Lustre, and some on Baselight.  I have a lot of experience on DaVinci (loaded 2k+), and experience on IRIDAS SpeedGrade DI.  I have no experience on Nucoda FimMaster but from word of mouth rank it highly among all of them.  SpeedGrade is surprisingly agile, and has some other very strong points, and I very much enjoy using it.  Baselight seems to be either peaking in popularity or still on the rise, in L.A.  DaVinci 2k+ and Resolve are tried and true platforms.  

Lest we get into a vendor/manufacturer battle here, I'd like to know from users familiar, as I am somewhat, with all these grading systems.   And woe betide me for leaving a system out (I'm sure I have).   

Marketing in the strict sense is strongly discouraged on the TIG so I'm looking at user opinions, from colorists who are not compensated for their predilections. 

thanks in advance
